I saw a comment from Christos Argyropoulos on Twitter implying that there’s a good scientific community on Bluesky, so I went there and looked around a little bit. I have account, but I haven’t done much with it. I was surprised that a fair number of people had followed me on Bluesky even though I only posted twice. I posted a couple links this evening, doubling my total activity on Bluesky.

I don’t know what I’ll do with my Bluesky or Mastodon accounts. I certainly will not try to replicate what I built on Twitter. So far I’m more of a reader than a writer on Bluesky and Mastodon. Bluesky is not a science-focused social network, but I may use it for that, only following science-oriented accounts there. We’ll see.

You can always find me here, whether or not you can find me on Bluesky, Mastodon, or Twitter. You can subscribe to this site to get notifications of new posts via RSS or email, and I also have a monthly newsletter where I post blog highlights.

  1. After leaving Twitter this blog/RSS was the only continuity I had for you until you mentioned your Mastodon/fediverse presence. I certainly still do miss all the daily accounts, maybe you’ll reconsider some automated way to cross-post from Twitter.

    In general I find Fediverse cultural norms and content quite satisfactory for academic content, and I have no intention of going to Bluesky.
